Now here is something I never would have thought would bring tears to my eyes. But wow.

Actor David Carradine, a born seeker and cult idol who broke through as the willing student called “grasshopper” in the 1970s TV series “Kung Fu” and decades later as leader of an assassin squad in “Kill Bill,” was found dead Thursday in Thailand. Police said he appeared to have hanged himself.


Just wow!

As Carradine said "If you cannot be the poet, be the poem."

I am glad I got to shake his.

Holy crap
Well when I went freelance I was scared shitless about how I was going to make it work. Well I am busier now than I was when I was fulltime. I am exhausted, think I picked up a bug on this last show, and now my body is so run down it will take a while to heal up. I feel sorry for some of my fellow cohorts that are starving and cannot find work. But then I ask myself, what I am doing differently from them. Why am I running my ass off and they aren’t?
Should to the wheel for now I guess.

I know I have not been on in a while, mostly because of a whirlwind of stuff going on. And the least favorite was the collapse of something I was helping build since 1994. It isn’t dead yet but after laying everyone off, then turning in my resignation myself, well it was a sad day. Now I find myself in a place I have not been in in over 15 years. Hitting the free agent world as an independent.

Head first!

I&T 1994 to 2008

Really hope the remaining partners can keep it afloat and get it back on it’s feet.

Ok 100% the coolest thing I have seen in a very long time.

Now all I have to do is find a way to afford one.


Yes I am a geek!

Good Morning
Popped onto live journal and then realized I have not been on here in a while. Been a rough run, from the end of December until last thursday. Started with a rough show in Orlando, then to Las Vegas and then off to Chicago. It starts to hit you when you have no energy to even go out for dinner, let alone be a tourist in your old home town. Felt great to sleep in until 8am when the phone started to ring off the hook. But at least I can shut my phone this weekend before flying out to Las Vegas again.

Life is good, can't wait to get some sleep.

Falling James in the Tahoe mud
Stick around to tell us all the tail
He fell in love with a Gun Street Girl and
Now he's danced in the Birmingham jail.

Took a 100 dollars off a slaughterhouse Joe
Brought a bran' new michigan 20 gauge
Got all liquored up on that road house corn,
Blew a hole in the hood of a yellow corvette
Blew a hole in the hood of a yellow corvette.
Brought a second hand Nova from a Cuban Chinese
Dyed his hair in the bathroom of Texaco
With a pawnshop radio, quarter past 4
Well, he left Waukegan at the slammin' of the door
He left Waukegan at the slammin' of the door

I said John, John he's long gone
Gone to Indiana
Ain't never coming home
I said John, John he's long gone
Gone to Indiana, ain't never coming home.
Sitting in a sycamore in St. John's Wood
Soaking' day old bread in kerosene
He was blue as a robin's egg brown as a hog
Stayin' out of circulation till the dogs get tire
Stayin' out of circulation till the dogs get tired
Shadow fixed the toilet with an old trombone
He never got up in the morning on a Saturday
Sittin' by the Erie with a bull whipped dog
Tellin' everyone he saw
They went thatta way

Tellin' everyone he saw
They went thatta way.
Now the rain's like gravel on old tin roof
And the Burlinton Northern's pullin' out of the world
With a head full of bourbon and a dream in the straw.
And a Gun Street Girl was the cause of it all.
Riding in the shadow by the St. Joe Ridge
He heard the click clack tappin' of a blind man's cane
Pullin' into Baker on New Year's Eve
With one eye on the pistol the other on the door,
With one eye on the pistol the other on the door.
Miss Charlotte took her satchel down to King Row
And the smuggled in a bran' new pair of alligator shoes.
With her fireman's raincoat and her long yellow hair, well
They tied her to a tree with a skinny millionaire,
They tied her to a tree with a skinny millionaire.

I said John, John he's long gone
Gone to Indiana
Ain't never coming home
I said John, John he's long gone
Gone to Indiana, ain't never coming home.
Bangin' on a table with an old tin cup
Sing I'll never kiss a Gun Street Girl again,
I'll never kiss a Gun Street Girl again.
Repeat chorus

* I had to post this. I was listening to this song as I was packing my first suit case, full of mostly dirty clothes from a rather long trip. Have not pulled a long one like this since I spent 3 months in Las Vegas 2 year ago. I am listening to the lyrics of this Tom Waits song, trying to make sense of them. Then it hits me, this reminds me of what I just went through on this last show. I have never met people that spend so much time trying to make things last longer than they should. It just doesn't make sense. So back to the song. I download the lyrics and read them, about ten times. Certain parts make sense but as a whole I ask myself what the fuck. lol I love Tom Waits. Way to put things in perspective without really making sense....... to me.

Setting up a camera to get some candid of people walking into our general session this morning I noticed something rather interesting. We were getting shots of 3,100 people walking down a hallway and about 95% of them were either talking on their cell phones or reading their blackberries. I know that I tend to use my phone more than I should, but wow, what an eye opener. Out of 35 minutes of footage we got about 95 seconds of it we can use with people actually talking and enjoying themselves. Granted these people are here for their jobs and here to network and work, but this is the SPA show. People are supposed to be relaxed and happy. Right?

Well have to go, cell phone is ringing.

Miss you guys.

We experience many things in this life, some good, some bad. It is evitable that we will out live our parents, but not this quick. I hear comments from my family and have used them myself from time to time. “Live in the fast lane, die in the fast lane.” “Living on borrowed time.” I guess I didn’t know as much of the man I called my dad as I thought I did. One of his brothers tells me, “I am surprised he lived this long.” Going to miss that man, I wrote him out of my life for a long time and about 6 years ago I started letting him back in. I am thankful for the time we had.
I want to thank all my friends for your wonderful support and loving words. It means a lot to me. Be safe out there.

US Postal Service.
What a cool thing. Do you have 41 cents? Well then you can have the post office send anything you can find into an envelope and under 16 ounces anywhere in the US. Need something larger, hell give them a few more dollars and you can even get it insured. Which is a good thing since one of my packages from Japan never arrived. Well I never received it, however the post office is convinced that I did and I signed for it. But for some reason they cannot find the signature or the package, but their records show that I received and signed for it. I am happy for insurance, if they cover that.

Here is an eye opener for the US economy.

1.00 USD = 0.994631 CAD

It is now cheaper for Canadians to shop in the US than it is for US to shop in Canada. First time since the 70's.

Work work work. And soon, geeks geeks and more geeks, bring on the dragon con. Oh I cannot wait. Only 30 days left. 30 days to save up enough money to eat drink and be merry. And with any luck I might have enough time to finish a costume or two for a few people.

Ah the life
Relaxing gig, easy client, and beautiful weather, oh and 15 hours sleep in a row. Now this is the way a gig should go. And the weather in San Diego is perfect. You know the Walgreen’s commercials... I think they are about San Diego. And to make this even cooler, San Diego is hosting 6 Tall Ships in San Diego Harbor. Ah the beauty and wonder of those old tall sailing ships that still float and work well. TO be out on the open sea in one of those has to be amazing. But I will settle with paying the 10 bucks to tour them all and take hundreds of pictures.

Hello from San Diego.

My website has become something I dislike. It is as if I was not listened to when I was describing the way I wanted it designed and laid out. I was looking for something edgy that still spoke of what and who I am and what I wanted to tell the world about the art I see, and my friends see and share it with everyone. Right now I have the image of what someone else’s vision is of what I see. Odd isn’t it. So I have to ask myself is it because of the way I described it? So maybe something are better off if you do them yourself. It is fairly easy to tell myself what I see in my head, it’s my head.
I know I haven’t posted in a while and of all the wonderful things that have been going on lately I decide to vent about my web site. My live journal has become a venting ground of a lot of negative things. I am not sure how I feel about that. As I read back I see a lot of me complaining about this or that, a bad gig, something at work, drama with friends. I don’t think that is what I meant to build here when I started this account. So now it is time to move forward and see if it changes or stays the same.

Cheers to you all.

Beauty in words.
Sitting in a cozy chair with good friends, and watching open mic night for poetry. What beauty in words, like music or photos, art in words that can bring on many different emotions, happy, sad, anger, lust, passion, what more can one ask for in an evening?

The sky is falling…..the sky is falling. My goddess why do I have to walk in the front door to that. To think, it was a nice relaxing weekend off. So I have to ask myself, would the computer system, phone system and everything else come crashing down be my problem. After about 15 minutes I realize I have fixed all these problems in the past so now they are mine. Sucks to be handy sometimes. So I begin drawing lines in the sand.

First Line.
I have so much paperwork to finish before flying out of town so the phones system will have to wait….again. Well we need phones so I hired a service to take over our hone system and hardware. Spent money but it is done.

Second Line.
Get off my arse, if the client wants us to do their show in Las Vegas they will call. We did everything we could to make them happy and now we wait. So BACK OFF!

Third Line will be drawn shortly after I return.

Ah ok I feel better even though we are leaving the shop at 8:30PM at night after Jen spends just over an hour fixing a spread sheet I built, during much lack of sleep in Orlando, to keep track of peoples show hours. Little did I know this spread sheet would help me get 500k out of a client in overages.

Where have all the flowers gone?
Can't sleep on the plane. Must be to tired. I am watching out the window as the twinkle of orange lights competes with the clouds as it fights it's way to the plane. Like watching the reflections of sunlight streaming though the trees as it hits a river and shimmers it's faint glow. Reminds me of wind passing through a wind chime, only making noise instead of light. I think I found my imagination again. It was laying in bed under a pile of lack of sleep. And I am in danger of losing it again as my internal clock is so fucked up I cannot find a way to fall asleep at 3am in the morning.

At least I have my kitties!
